Finally, that arrogant shit-bag Pruitt has gone.   (unrelenting attacks)  :laugh:

Quote
I have accepted the resignation of Scott Pruitt as the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency. Within the Agency Scott has done an outstanding job, and I will always be thankful to him for this. The Senate confirmed Deputy at EPA, Andrew Wheeler, will......on Monday assume duties as the acting Administrator of the EPA. I have no doubt that Andy will continue on with our great and lasting EPA agenda. We have made tremendous progress and the future of the EPA is very bright!

Trump may think the EPA future looks bright, but now having a former coal lobbyist, will darken the 'bright' skies soon enough.

Good grief, that took long enough, but I'm glad that circus has finally pulled up the stakes. Too bad his wife never got that Chik-a-Filet franchise or six-figure fund raising gig they were after; I wonder how they're going to pay for ensuing legal fees. Yeah, acting administrator is a former coal lobbyist, and that's just the interim!

The condo situation
The scandal from which it all began. Pruitt got a steal on a Washington DC condo, paying just $50 a night in rent, way below market rates. The only catch: the condo belonged to the wife of J Steven Hart, a major oil lobbyist who represents Exxon, Cheniere Energy and other companies that are regulated by the EPA. The arrangement was a clear conflict of interest, but Pruitt claimed it was above board because Hart had no clients with business before the EPA, although it later emerged that was not true.

He used public money to live like a Holywood mogul
Pruitt demanded chartered jets and first-class travel.
Pruitt has spent hundreds of thousands on first class flights, chartered jets and expensive renovations. He has repeatedly refused to fly coach class on trips, instead racking up over $100,000 on first-class plane tickets and a further $58,000 on private and chartered planes. He also spent $43,000 on the creation and installation of a custom-made soundproof booth in the EPA, so he could have private conversations. Pruitt also spent $1,500 on 12 pens bearing his signature.

The EPA inspector general is currently looking into his spending and has already had to expand the scope of investigation as further spending allegations have emerged.

He repeatedly broke the law
Pruitt’s disregard for government ethics was impressive, even by the standards of the Trump administration. It’s believed he was using four separate email accounts, some of which may not be secure or being properly archived. The Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility, an NGO, has filed a lawsuit that claims Pruitt is deliberately avoiding creating written records of meetings so they can’t be archived or subject to oversight. The lawsuit also claims Pruitt “uses phones other than his own to deal with important EPA-related matters so the calls do not show up in his call logs”.

His security detail cost taxpayers millions
Pruitt demanded a 20-member full-time security detail, costing over three million dollars, far more than any previous EPA administrator has spent on security in a similar time period. Much of that spending came from huge overtime bills, a result of Pruitt’s demand for 24-hour protection. This included family trips to Disneyland and the Rose Bowl when Pruitt wasn’t engaged in any public business (Pruitt’s Rose Bowl tickets were donated by a major oil PR, an arrangement that is also under investigation.)

Whenever Pruitt or his aides have been questioned about these arrangements, they have claimed that Pruitt is so hated by the American public that he is in constant danger. EPA spokesman Jahan Wilcox pointed to the “unprecedented” number of death threats Pruitt has received.

He treated experienced EPA staff like his snack servants
Four separate sources told the Daily Beast that Pruitt would send staff out to get protein bars, cookies and yoghurts for him. He would not be satisfied with a run to the vending machines, either – Pruitt demanded they visit upmarket grocery chain Dean & DeLuca instead. The Washington Post also reported that he would send his security detail on bizarre personal errands, including fetching him hand lotion that is only available at Ritz Carlton hotels.

...except for the personal aides he gave huge raises to
When Pruitt wanted to give two of his closest aides, Sarah Greenwalt and Millan Hupp, huge salary bumps, raising their pay to $164,200 and $114,590 respectively, he had to seek White House permission. When the White House refused, he found an obscure piece of legislation, worked into the 1996 Clean Water Act, that allowed a small number of roles in the EPA to be appointed without White House approval so that, for example, experts could be quickly hired in a time of crisis. Pruitt used the legislation to sort raises for his aides.

He used EPA resources to try and find his wife a job
Samantha Dravis, a senior EPA administrator, told investigators that she was tasked by her boss with finding his wife a job, one that paid at least $200,000. That was after Pruitt had already been exposed for organizing a meeting with the CEO of Chick-fil-A to discuss “a potential business opportunity”. It emerged that he actually just wanted to find out if his wife could become a franchisee.

Even when he was corruptly using public money, he was still a cheapskate
A number of EPA staff told the Washington Post that Pruitt made them charge his hotel rooms to their personal cards, and then refused to reimburse them. This was particularly an issue for Pruitt’s former executive scheduler Sydney Hupp, who often had to shell out for Pruitt’s trips. Hupp was also asked by Pruitt to speak with staff at one of Trump’s hotels, believing he could get a deal on a second-hand mattress they were selling.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/jul/05/scott-pruitt-what-it-took-to-get-him-to-resign-from-his-epa-job

The problem with having, among other things, a morally bankrupt president, is that to him these are probably not that serious and as Pruitt had the support of the president, he felt he could continue for so long.

The guy replacing him is just as bad regarding the environment and not nearly as corrupt so the war on clean air and water and the national parks will continue.

The US's march to third world status will continue as long as drumpf is in office.

Donald Trump will almost entirely avoid London during his four-day visit to the UK next week, Downing Street has said, unveiling an itinerary that is likely to prompt accusations he is trying to avoid planned protests against him.

Details about what Trump will do in Scotland will be released next week, but No 10 has described the leg as “a private element of the official visit”. There is widespread speculation he will spend part of it playing golf.

While he is in the capital, a giant “Trump baby” balloon, caricaturing him as a nappy-wearing infant, will be flown in the sky over Westminster after the Greater London Authority (GLA) granted the creators permission.


Quote
But political allies and acolytes of Mr Trump have slammed the stunt. Republicans Overseas spokesman Drew Liquerman called it “cringeworthy”.
He said: “It’s embarrassing. It’s embarrassing for the people flying it, for the British residents of London and for people in the UK.”

Quote
Nigel Farage, the former Ukip leader, said: “This is the biggest insult to a sitting US president ever. Would this be happening if it was Obama? Makes London look ridiculous.”

Heavens above, Conservatives are so, erm, so fragile sometimes.  I doubt the London residents are really that bothered.  In fact, I'm sure they're quite proud of it.  :cheesy:

Quote
Anti-Trump campaigners say their inflatable baby is a form of peaceful protest. They say the blimp reflects Mr Trump’s character as an “angry baby with a fragile ego and small hands”.

I'm not the most Britain-loving of people, but sometimes, we do come up with good stuff.

Advocates for improved nutrition for babies have expressed outrage over reports that the Trump administration bullied other governments in an attempt to prevent the passage of an international resolution promoting breastfeeding.

The US delegation to the World Health Assembly in Geneva reportedly deployed threats and other heavy-handed measures to try and browbeat nations into backing off the resolution.

Breastfeeding?  Against breastfeeding?

Quote
The administration also used its network of diplomats to lean on member states. Turning on the delegation from Ecuador, the US government said that unless the South American nation withdrew its backing of the resolution it would face punitive trade moves and even the potential loss of military help in its battle against gang violence.

Bullying South American countries too.

Quote
Lucy Sullivan, executive director of 1,000 Days, the US-headquartered international group working to improve nutrition for babies and infants, said in a Twitter thread that the US intervention amounted to “public health versus private profit. What is at stake: breastfeeding saves women and children’s lives. It is also bad for the multibillion-dollar global infant formula (and dairy) business.”

There we have it. 

Quote
Patti Rundall of the UK-based campaign Baby Milk Action told the New York Times: “We were astonished, appalled and also saddened. What happened was tantamount to blackmail, with the US holding the world hostage and trying to overturn nearly 40 years of consensus on best way to protect infant and young child health.”

Under an internal code of the World Health Organisation, baby formula companies are banned from explicitly targeting mothers and their health carers. Advertising is also controlled.

A plethora of studies have shown the stark health improvements brought about by breastfeeding in the US and around the world. A Harvard study in 2016 estimated that 3,340 premature deaths a year among both mothers and babies could be prevented in the US alone given adequate breastfeeding.

Do as I say, not a I do, the repugnican motto:

Quote
Donald Trump’s tariffs on Chinese goods won’t touch Ivanka Trump’s foreign-made products for her fashion line.

While Trump rails at Harley-Davidson motorcycles for moving some production to Europe to dodge EU tariffs, the first daughter and senior White House adviser has never manufactured a single product for her Ivanka Trump brand on American soil.

Trump enacted tariffs Friday morning on $34 billion worth of Chinese goods, affecting hundreds of products from boats to medical devices and auto parts. Products spared include those manufactured by his daughter.

That means Chengdu Kameido Shoes in Sichuan province can continue to supply shoes for the Ivanka Trump brand as it has in the past. It’s currently bidding for a new contract to manufacture 140,000 pairs of shoes for Trump’s company, a spokesman told The South China Morning Post.

Hypocrisy, thy name is drumpf.

We’re doing something new: analyzing every factual claim from President Trump’s campaign rally in Montana on Thursday.

According to The Fact Checker’s database, the president had made 3,251 false or misleading claims at the end of May, and his average daily rate was climbing.

This side of Trump really comes alive during campaign rallies, so we wanted to do the math and find out whether the president speaks more fictions or facts in front of his crowds.

We focused only on Trump’s statements of material fact at the Montana rally, avoiding trivialities and opinions. We didn’t double-count statements when the president repeated himself.

According to our analysis, the truth took a beating in Montana. From a grand total of 98 factual statements we identified, 76 percent were false, misleading or unsupported by evidence.

Now people aren't sure who is scarier, Trump or his supporters. 

Quote
Trump praised him in personal terms: “Boris Johnson is a friend of mine. He’s been very, very nice to me and very supportive. And maybe we’ll speak to him when I get over there. I like Boris Johnson. I’ve always liked him.”

That's it!  :rolleyes:  Ask any British person what they think of Boris Johnson and you'll probably not be able to post any of them.

Donald Trump hailed Boris Johnson as a future prime minister, accused the London mayor, Sadiq Khan, of doing “a bad job” on terrorism and said there had been too much immigration in Europe in an incendiary interview that raised questions about the decision to invite him to Britain.

Trump described Johnson as “a very talented guy” for whom he had “a lot of respect”. He claimed he was not trying to pit Johnson against his host, but added: “I am just saying I think he would be a great prime minister. I think he’s got what it takes.”

“Take a look at the terrorism that is taking place. Look at what is going on in London,” Trump said, before referring directly to Khan: “I think he has done a very bad job on terrorism. I think he has done a bad job on crime, if you look, all of the horrible things going on there, with all of the crime that is being brought in.”

Trump even appeared to hold Khan personally responsible for immigration in Europe, in comments that were particularly inflammatory. “I think allowing millions and millions of people to come into Europe is very, very sad. I look at cities in Europe, and I can be specific if you’d like. You have a mayor who has done a terrible job in London. He has done a terrible job.”

“If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the UK, so it will probably kill the deal. If they do that, then their trade deal with the US will probably not be made,” he said.

“We have enough difficulty with the European Union. We are cracking down right now on the European Union because they have not treated the United States fairly on trading.”



“They like me a lot in the UK. I think they agree with me on immigration.”

Brits hate you fuuckwit!  May invites you to Britain and you continue your asshole behaviour.  Who thinks that he wanted to play golf in Scotland and as then decided to chuck in a visit to May on top of that?

Did you just call me ignorant .

Shouldn’t that be a warning? Watch this guy,
During bush and Reagan, people in the uk protested and even burned cars in parts of Europe. 
So this is nothing new.

 Liberals in Europe and japan get nuts when the us elects republicans , but their governments are run by people who are protectionist in trade and socially conservative.   SO they want us to shoot ourselves in the foot.
They get angry because they worry that the free ride is over .

Trump described Johnson as “a very talented guy” for whom he had “a lot of respect”. He claimed he was not trying to pit Johnson against his host, but added: “I am just saying I think he would be a great prime minister. I think he’s got what it takes.”

“Take a look at the terrorism that is taking place. Look at what is going on in London,” Trump said, before referring directly to Khan: “I think he has done a very bad job on terrorism. I think he has done a bad job on crime, if you look, all of the horrible things going on there, with all of the crime that is being brought in.”

Trump even appeared to hold Khan personally responsible for immigration in Europe, in comments that were particularly inflammatory. “I think allowing millions and millions of people to come into Europe is very, very sad. I look at cities in Europe, and I can be specific if you’d like. You have a mayor who has done a terrible job in London. He has done a terrible job.”

“If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the UK, so it will probably kill the deal. If they do that, then their trade deal with the US will probably not be made,” he said.

“We have enough difficulty with the European Union. We are cracking down right now on the European Union because they have not treated the United States fairly on trading.”



“They like me a lot in the UK. I think they agree with me on immigration.”

Brits hate you fuuckwit!  May invites you to Britain and you continue your asshole behaviour.  Who thinks that he wanted to play golf in Scotland and as then decided to chuck in a visit to May on top of that?

Many probably like him.  But who cares ?   You can say that about any public figure, that they don’t like him.  My black British friend said that obama resembled hitler.

This is more shaming average Americans for having trump as president.  It’s a dirty trick .  We could do the same for Sadie khan or Trudeau , but we don’t because we are not rude or more likely don’t care or know about those fools .
Trumpists (including yourself?) are ignorant. Who woulda thunk it?

Thanks for the info, jimbo.
Did you just call me ignorant .

Shouldn’t that be a warning? Watch this guy,
During bush and Reagan, people in the uk protested and even burned cars in parts of Europe. 
So this is nothing new.

 Liberals in Europe and japan get nuts when the us elects republicans , but their governments are run by people who are protectionist in trade and socially conservative.   SO they want us to shoot ourselves in the foot.
They get angry because they worry that the free ride is over .
US has a 25% tariff on imported trucks.

Looks like Ford and GM are getting the free ride.

Donald Trump described the European Union one of his greatest “foes” in another extraordinary diplomatic intervention on Sunday, just hours before sitting down to a high-stakes summit with Russian president Vladimir Putin.

Asked in a TV interview to name his “biggest foe globally right now”, the US president started by naming the European Union, calling the body “very difficult” before ticking off other traditional rivals like Russia and China.

Hours earlier, British prime minister Theresa May revealed that Trump suggested she “sue the EU” rather than go into negotiations over Brexit.

“Well I think we have a lot of foes,” Trump told CBS News at his Turnberry golf resort in Scotland. “I think the European Union is a foe, what they do to us in trade. Now you wouldn’t think of the European Union but they’re a foe.”

Yes, of course.  The EU, what a bunch of bastards.

The Kremlin has billed the summit as “the event of the summer” but Trump and advisers have played down expectations for a meeting that will include a session attended only by the two leaders and their interpreters. Putin and Trump are expected to discuss issues from nuclear arms treaties to the conflict in Syria, but with a very loosely-defined agenda.

“I go in with very low expectations,” Trump said on CBS.

Do people really, in the current political climate with Russia and the ongoing Russian inquiry, think it's ok for Trump to meet Putin alone?

In surprising remarks, the president admitted he “hadn’t thought” of asking Putin to extradite 12 Russians indicted over the theft of data from Democratic party bodies ahead of the 2016 election.

“I might,” he said. “I hadn’t thought of that. But I certainly, I’ll be asking about it.”

A 29 page document was made that outlined how these 12 Russians influenced the election.  With a member of Trump's team saying,  “who was in regular contact with senior members of the presidential campaign of Donald J Trump”. On 15 August 2016, according to the indictment, Guccifer 2.0 wrote: “thank u for writing back … do u find anyt(h)ing interesting in the docs i posted?”

Trump has dismissed Mueller’s investigation as a “witch-hunt” and never condemned Putin over election interference despite the findings of US intelligence agencies. This week he said he would bring up the issue when the two meet. “He may deny it,” Trump told reporters in Brussels. “I mean, it’s one of those things. So all I can do is say, ‘Did you?’ and ‘Don’t do it again.’”

On Saturday, Trump’s first reaction to the charges was to seek to shift blame to his predecessor, Barack Obama. “The stories you heard about the 12 Russians yesterday took place during the Obama Administration, not the Trump Administration,” he tweeted from his golf resort in Scotland. “Why didn’t they do something about it, especially when it was reported that President Obama was informed by the FBI in September, before the Election?”

Obama did propose something, but Mitch watered it down, dickhead.
